"Prostrate issues, what are the solutions ??"
 
   I have an enlarged prostrate, saw Urologist some years ago
he said over time it would get worse, and yes it's gotten worse/

Problem is the solutions available are not acceptable to me.

Urologist prescribed a med that relaxed muscles making it easier to
go pee, problem was it also screwed up my heart. I work out on a treadmill everyday, when I took this med all of a sudden I couldn't get my legs to move or my heart rate up, stopped the med.

Surgery:
The Dr kept saying retrograde ejaculation like a montra, over and over to CYA, I don't want that either.

Other meds I'm not amilar with, tho heard of Flomax and Avodart, either way most meds have negative side affects, so not sure what options are open?? Anyone have suggestions or familar with these
meds ??? Thanks THX

   There are a few non- drug, non-surgical procedures that may be promising such as microwave, radio- frequency ablation, laser, that might get around the drug side effects or the other problems with surgery ( transurethral resection). This is a superficial article, but you get some idea of terminology for deeper information dives.

   If surgery is only option, find a md that uses the the da Vinci robot assist, cuts are exact and precise, Alot of the neg side effects of surgery are reduced considerably.

OK, you do deserve to have someone take your issue seriously, and I can't offer much in that department... but I hope you'll allow me a little joke in good fun...

Prostrate issues? Well, guy, try standing up then!

What a long, strange trip it's been.

Ask your urologist about using flomax. It should be much more tolerable from a cardiac standpoint than what I'm guessing you're on (terazosin)

Saw palmetto ...

had a bit of an issue when I was 42 .. a few weeks on that cleared it up.. I have reccommended to friends .. that have taken 800 to 1000 mg a day for 3 times a day for a few weeks and then they slowed down.. on it.. and they claim it really improved their issues..

at 52 I really don't have any prostate issues to speak of .. but maybe a year ago -- I added 400mg a day to my morning supplements .. just cause I am gettin older.

   Im 51, and have been taking the saw palmetto for awhile,
and no prostate issues to speak off, but I started having
tingling in my feet and sometimes hands, ran some blood work,
and I was high in vitamin b6, Palmetto was the only supliment
that had b6 in it, I stopped taking it, and no more tingling..

FYI - a study comparing against placebo that was published last year:

Original Contribution
JAMA. 2011;306(12):1344-1351.
Effect of Increasing Doses of Saw Palmetto Extract on Lower Urinary Tract Symptoms
A Randomized Trial

Abstract

Context Saw palmetto fruit extracts are widely used for treating lower urinary tract symptoms attributed to benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH); however, recent clinical trials have questioned their efficacy, at least at standard doses (320 mg/d).

Objective To determine the effect of saw palmetto extract (Serenoa repens, from saw palmetto berries) at up to 3 times the standard dose on lower urinary tract symptoms attributed to BPH.

Design, Setting, and Participants A double-blind, multicenter, placebo-controlled randomized trial at 11 North American clinical sites conducted between June 5, 2008, and October 10, 2010, of 369 men aged 45 years or older, with a peak urinary flow rate of at least 4 mL/s, an American Urological Association Symptom Index (AUASI) score of between 8 and 24 at 2 screening visits, and no exclusions.

Interventions One, 2, and then 3 doses (320 mg/d) of saw palmetto extract or placebo, with dose increases at 24 and 48 weeks.

Main Outcome Measures Difference in AUASI score between baseline and 72 weeks. Secondary outcomes included measures of urinary bother, nocturia, peak uroflow, postvoid residual volume, prostate-specific antigen level, participants' global assessments, and indices of sexual function, continence, sleep quality, and prostatitis symptoms.

Results Between baseline and 72 weeks, mean AUASI scores decreased from 14.42 to 12.22 points (.2.20 points; 95% CI, .3.04 to .0.36) with saw palmetto extract and from 14.69 to 11.70 points (.2.99 points; 95% CI, .3.81 to .2.17) with placebo. The group mean difference in AUASI score change from baseline to 72 weeks between the saw palmetto extract and placebo groups was 0.79 points favoring placebo (upper bound of the 1-sided 95% CI most favorable to saw palmetto extract was 1.77 points, 1-sided P = .91). Saw palmetto extract was no more effective than placebo for any secondary outcome. No clearly attributable adverse effects were identified.

Conclusion Increasing doses of a saw palmetto fruit extract did not reduce lower urinary tract symptoms more than placebo.

I am currently seeing a urologist with prostatitis. I have been having problems with this for about 5 years averaging 1 to 2 inflammations a year, each time I have had to take ciprofloxin for 2 to 3 weeks. In the last year it has more frequently. The urologist said this is a chronic condition and put me on tamsulosin and finsteride. It appears they have not helped as I had a inflammation after 3 months of taking the medications. I also have suffered from some of the side effects. I have been told the next possible solution would be a seed implant. Has anyone had this done. I definitely would like to avoid prostate removal.

I used to have a lot of problems with prostatitis. They put me on cipro and other antibiotics but the prostatitis alwasy came back.

I finally found a doctor that cured me. He put me on Prosta Q (http://www.farrlabs.com/) and it cured me in about 3 weeks. The primary ingredient is quecetin, which has bee shown to be an anti-inflammatory for the prostrate. For the past 5 years I have taken a daily 250mg dose of quercetin and I have not had another attack of prostatitis in years. I get quercetin online here http://www.vitaminshoppe.com/store/en/browse/sku_detail.jsp?id=VS-1242

Quecetin worked for me. It might work for you as well.

Prostate massages are good for preventing enlarged prostates, however, i am not too sure of their reliability once prostatitis has occurred. I do believe that it can help you feel better though. You will be amazed by the powers of touch, even if you are doing it yourself at home.

Below is an article which seems to have the pros and cons of such a massage. I do not have too much time to browse the web right now so forgive me if the information is incomplete/ incorrect.

Prostate Massage Benefits

Mar 15, 2011 | By Joshua McCarron
The prostate is a small, walnut-sized gland located within the male reproductive system, near the bladder. The prostate's main function is to secrete a fluid that helps form seminal fluid, which carries sperm, according to Ohio State University Medical Center. Prostate massage refers to the manual stimulation of the prostate gland with a finger or other device. Prostate massage offers a variety of benefits, but check with your doctor before you experiment with prostate massage.

Impotence
Impotence is generally defined as the inability to achieve an erection. Prostate massage can help men overcome impotence by stimulating the flow of seminal fluid and increasing circulation, according to ChecktheProstate.com.

Pain / Swelling
A swollen prostate gland can be quite uncomfortable. Every time you sit down, pressure will build around the prostate. Regular prostate massage can help reduce swelling by releasing fluids and stimulating blood flow through the area. If you have been diagnosed with prostate cancer, consult with a licensed therapist and your doctor before trying prostate massage.

Improved Ejaculation
The intensity of your ejaculation can be improved through prostate massage. Many men report heightened sexual experiences when the prostate is stimulated, and regular massage can create an "exploding" ejaculation, according to Outsidehealth.net.

Increased Urine Flow
Enlargement of the prostate gland is one cause of difficulty with urine flow, according to the University of Maryland Medical Center. The reduction of pressure from released fluids during prostate massage can help get urine flow back to normal.

   Squirt your cum five times a day cause it has fewer bad effects than pills or surgery.

   BPH hit me at a young age, early 40's. Used Flomax more than 10 years--ultimately caused retrograde ejaculation. Ultimately Flomax lost its effectiveness. Urologist then doubled the dosage and I couldn't handle it. Urologist suggested Green Light Laser surgery (no cutting, just burning away)--worked like a charm. I highly recommend it!!!

Whatever you do, do something. Living with BPH was a nightmare.

   Uroxatral works for me less side effect, just some stuffy nose and small come but it is not that bad. The brand name work better for me than generic.
